Strawberry Festival Annual Fundraiser

Pat Hansen, Chairwoman of the Strawberry Festival event, has formally announced that the 2020 Owego Strawberry Festival is cancelled. There’ll be no FBC-O ‘Dollar Dogs’ this year.

The K.I.N.D. Project

The KIND Project will continue with its mission during this COVID-19 period as there is an even greater need now for the products provided. The recent stockpiling/hoarding of supplies have left store shelves bare, leaving caregivers to young children desperate for the essentials provided by KIND. COVID-19 or no COVID-19, children continue to need diapers and supplies, and the FBC-O KIND Project will continue to meet their needs.

Thank you for your continued prayers for KIND, the families it serves and thank you for blessing us with the many contributions that we have already received during this time of uncertainty. God is good!
